Many thanks to Spillane's Butchers & Lombards Bar for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The Blackwater, also known as the Munster Blackwater (in Irish: An Abhainn Mhór, The Great River), is a prominent river that traverses counties Kerry, Cork, and Waterford in Ireland. Its source lies in the Mullaghareirk Mountains in County Kerry, from where it flows eastward through County Cork, passing through Mallow and Fermoy. Upon entering County Waterford, it continues its course through Lismore before making a sudden southern turn at Cappoquin and ultimately emptying into the Celtic Sea at Youghal Harbour. The Blackwater spans a total length of 169 kilometers.This river holds distinction as one of the premier salmon fishing destinations in Ireland. To support the anglers, Farson Digital has been commissioned to install a webcam that will aid in monitoring the river levels and conditions. Although Fermoy is relatively young, the territory of Fear Muighe, where Fermoy is situated, has roots in ancient Irish history when the O'Keeffes were its chieftains. After the Norman invasion, the territory was granted to the Flemings, and later it came under the ownership of the Roches. In the 7th century, the esteemed educational institution of Fermoy was established by St. Finnchua, contributing to the area's cultural heritage.
